Local Legend Wins Hyperion Stakes
Collingrove Stud stallion Rory's Jester (Crown Jester-Rory's Rocket, by Roan Rocket) added a group success when 4YO gelding Local Legend (Rory's Jester-Spectrum, by Old Spice) scored a 0.75-lengths win in the $100,000 weight-for-age Gr3 Darley Hyperion Stakes (1400m) at Ascot. Local Legend (ridden by Paul Harvey for trainer John Price) defeated favoured fellow 4YO gelding Attractions (Scenic-Eucla, by Euclase) & 5YO gelding Changing Lanes (Racer's Edge-Throwing Copper, by Prego). Local Legend was sold to trainer Price for $70,000 during the Magic Millions Key Farm Dispersal Sale in Perth a week ago; overall he now has 9 wins (4 stakes victories) & 6 placings in 25 starts for $325,290 prize-money.
